Did you know?
The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree ( Submit your own)

This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.Aubrey Davis in The Under-Sofa

May 2019
The AC is coming!  The May AC will take place on this Saturday, May 4th! To ensure you survive, please make sure that...
  • Your mini-profile is filled in with height properly formatted
  • All of your characters have been listed in the Character Directory—check back on your entries to make sure they were processed properly! Anyone reactivated this month will need to be placed back on.
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • This one's mostly for staff, but that your full profile has been filled in ;)
If all of the above are squared away, there should be no reason for you to fall inactive in the upcoming check!  To our new members: the AC requires no work on your part. The staff team simply makes sure the above is seen to!

The AC is underway—deactivations and lists are being processed, and everyone's posts now count for May! If you lost a character you did not wish to lose, you may post in maintenance to take their soul back from the reaper starting Wednesday, May 8thth. If you currently have no active characters, you may post immediately to reactivate one! As always, if your account went inactive prior to the AC, you're welcome (and encouraged!) to reactivate at any time :)

(And a quick reminder that so as not to be immediately deactivated again, please ensure your new - or newly reactivated - characters do make it onto the Character Directory!)

This month's Posting Wizard competition saw Kit (@Roberto Devine) take the prize with 14 posts! There will, alas, be no competition for May because I am an imperfect person (I may have forgot to open signups #oops). You are, however, MORE than welcome to post your events for May, though anyone planning anything grand would do well to remember that the Hogwarts Coming Out Ball will take place on May 30th!

Before I disappear into the ether, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor faced off (/will face off) on the quidditch pitch today! It was a very close match at 80-80 before @Sloane Bixby caught the snitch, winning the match for Gryffindor 230-80! Alas, this wasn't a good enough showing for either team who place third (Gryffindor) and fourth (Ravenclaw) in the league overall. This means that Slytherin and Hufflepuff will face off for the Quidditch Cup on May 18th!

Less than a month on the calendar left to rack up those house points, too!
